in boxes and dusty old stuff. I can't even explain to you - unless you've recently moved yourself (Jessi)- how bitter I am about packing. I have accumulated WAY too much crap-ola over the past three years. It's amazing how you manage to maximize the storage capacity of any given space whether the 'stuff' in it is needed or not. I have been purging 'stuff' steadily over the last week and a half and while I feel very free from the burden of it, I'm a little bummed by how much needless stuff we've blown a staggering quantity of money on when we likely didn't need to do so. A lesson, perhaps but at least my chances of fitting all that 'stuff' into the trailer increases with every trip to the consignment shop!!
It was a little sad for me to be in my studio at the house we're moving out of knowing I had no time to scrap. I did (I must confess) spend one day when I first arrived in there creating. I made about six pages and had to force myself to stop and pack instead. I'm a little surprised to see how many boxes were really needed to pack up my studio. I hope I can organize my new studio in a way that contributes to efficiency and maximum creativity.
So, since I'm starting with a totally blank canvas as far as organizing goes, I want to know what some of your best organization tips are. I want to know how you store some of those hard-to-store items like chipboard pieces, ribbons, paper scraps...share your wisdom with me. Leave your ideas in the comments section so that we can all benefit from them!
I can't wait to learn what you guys do in your scrap spaces to make the most of your creative time.
